event, a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce in california. that was it. on tuesday, his two events were both fund-raisers. they were closed to the public and those were in the great swing state of utah, followed by the great swing state of texas. okay, this is not what it looks like to campaign for president. these are not swing states. republican senator lindsey graham told reporters of mitt romney today, "he's a great guy, he should win this election, but being in utah is necessary to raise money, but he doesn't have to be there, in my view." senator graham continued, "i think what romney needs to do is get into virginia and run for sheriff. this is not rocket science." real clear politics covered mr. romney's mysteriously light schedule yesterday. they quoted a well-connected republican fund-raiser saying, "there's not really a campaign here. he's getting ready for the debates and he's out fund-raising. you've got enough money." real clear politics also notes that in the 19 days following the conclusion of the republican convention, mr. romney spent only 9 of those 19 day

our bill, the agriculture appropriations bill, the commerce, justice, and science bill, the department of defense bill, energy and water, homeland security, legislative branch, military construction and veterans' affairs and the state department and foreign operations bills were all reported from the appropriations committee on a bipartisan basis. in putting together all of these bills, the appropriations committee functioned the way committees are supposed to. we worked together to develop thoughtful and fiscalfully -- fiscally responsible bills that could be brought to the senate for full consideration, debate, amendment and most likely, passage. but instead, mr. president, not a single one of those bills, not even those bills for which the counterpart has been passed by the full house, was brought to the senate floor. i'm very disappointed that the house and senate leaders have announced that rather than consider and complete these appropriations bills, they would instead kick the can down the road by passing a six-month stopgap funding bill. and the house has done just that, and wi

people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th

consumer protections to fight back against cruel health insurance practices. i chair the commerce committee and that's about all we dealt with for the past two years, health insurance companies and their practices. and it's pretty depressing. for example, the new provision ending discrimination by health insurance companies against people with preexisting conditions. that's law. well, under ryan-romney, that would end. and i reiterate that people -- women who are pregnant, millions of americans who have diabetes, people with asthma, people with acne have frequently been just turned down by health insurance companies when they ruled the roost. now they don't rule the roost under the new health care bill and a lot of money is being rebated to american people who were overcharged. the reform that we passed allows parents to keep their children on their insurance plan until the kids are 26 years old. mr. president, that's one of the most popular things in the country. that would disappear under the ryan-romney budget plan. and understand that there's a lot of lack of understanding of the health

statements made to commerce and senator grassley. as we turn the page, it is the committee's hope, that we will in the coming days, see the level of cooperation we have that we have not seen before. i was encouraged that the 300 or so pages -- notwithstanding that hope in the days to come, most of those 100,000 pages that were made available to you, mr. horwitz, would be made available to the committee or, in the alternative and perhaps better, and ability and willingness by the attorney general to allow a side-by-side evaluation by our committee so that we could save the redundant time. but you and your staff have used a great deal of. in cleaning the facts and figures of these documents that we haven't seen. it would be hopeful that that kind of willingness to have our investigative approach see what you see, would, in fact, allow us to come to a quicker close and perhaps eliminate the need for protracted fights in the court. lastly, i look forward to the american people having an opportunity to read as much of the material as can be made unsealed as possible. i believe the american peop

began the week on monday in l.a. speaking to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he did a telemundo interview and then this forum yesterday. something he hasn't done until now really, until after he clenched the nomination after he formally became the nominee after the convention. he's also spending a lot of money on hispanic ads lately. so we're seeing a sprint to the finish all out effort by mitt romney in these last 40-some days. it was a very good crowd for him. his people did a great job in packing the house with some of the strongest supporters in south florida. president obama will have a similar crowd today of his strongest supporters. he got some tough questions, john, at the beginning. a real grilling on the immigration issue. but then they moved to the economic and education issues. you could see this was a mitt romney at ease. i could tell that he's been preparing and briefing for debates. this was not a debate format. it was close. he did well. >> you talked about immigration there. one of the reasons that mitt romney is trailing president obama 2-1 among latino voters
on foreign policy. peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations ending tangling alliances with none. i think america should stop acting a the world's policeman and take care of our orders and secure our country first. i do believe in a strong national defense but the optimism word is defense, not offense. we don't have the machine any to continue the wars. we're wasting over a trillion since 2001 on just on bombs. i think our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> moderator: todd akin. akin: it is important to have a tore run policy to start with. you have to so have basic principles and guidelines and perspectives where you want to go as a president in terms of foreign policy. that needs to include iraq. it needs to include afghanistan. it needs to include a whole lot of other countries as well and the problem is we haven't had that. in fact what it seems like the weak and vacillating policies we have almost punished our friend and helped our enemies. right off the bat we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland where we had plans to

on the energy commerce committee, so i agree. i can see how energy regulation can be hurtful to job creation. there is no question we need to deregulate. do we keep the american people safe? of course we want to do that. but how do we battle this in a way that grows the economy? that can be done. the administration over the last four years has tried to artifically tried to move the market through mechanisms that have not been on track with true market conditions. i think energy is the prime example of that. i come from a very expensive energy state, california. very expensive state all together. many would say the legislature in california doesn't do a whole lot of things right. but i'm fearing that washington has been going more or less sacramento would be a huge mistake. 435 members of the house of representatives and the members of the senate, we can do it all and we should do it all. >> i think the markets the american people need confidence. i think changes need to be made that will grow the economy. i think romney represents a pro-growth economy. if you don't get that confidence out of
